Ask Cullen

The Q&A’s are really popular here, but I’ve had problems over the last few years figuring out a good way to keep them archived so that people can really benefit from them.  I’ve tried comments pages, discussion forums, etc. None of that really works very well.  So I decided to just create a different site with a totally different format.  It’s called “Ask Cullen” and the URL is   It’s designed kind of like a Reddit, but only for money, finance and economics.  Users can register, build credibility, answer questions, ask questions, etc.

The goal of the site is to provide an educational forum where anyone can ask a question about anything and find reasonably quick answers to complex or easy questions.   It’s annoying that it’s a different site, but this allows me to much more efficiently archive and maintain the content.  I really hope people find it helpful and please don’t assume that I am the only one who can answer the questions.  After all, other users can rank your comments so if you don’t prove your understanding you’ll be thrown under the bus.  I’d really like to encourage the same sort of thoughtful, kind and educational comments that generally occur here at Pragcap so please keep that in mind.  I don’t have time to answer every question nor do I even have all the answers so I hope the community will chime in and make it a productive site.

You can always find the links to the site in the top menu bar here under “Ask Cullen” or in the sidebar in the image that ask if you have questions.   I hope you find it helpful and educational.

– Cullen

PS – I’ll be migrating the old comments over to the new site over time.  There are tons of good ones in the old archives….

    I get the impression you enjoy teaching more than anything else. Why don’t you just get a job at a university?

  • Cullen Roche

    The teaching aspect of this site is a hobby for me. I enjoy it, but I am not sure I want to pursue it as a career. At least not right now. :-)

  • Cowpoke

    I agree, Teach via this site and your others:
    as a Hobby. make a living for yourself and family in the real world of finance/investing by advising the wealthy folks like SS.

    Poor Folk like myself appreciate the enormous amout of fiscal crumbs you let fall off of the monetary table.

    Sometimes I think you actually make a mess simply so you can wipe it all down onto the floor of free edumicationous for the massimuss.

    Any How, Keep the lessons coming because truth be know you are every much a student of your students as you are their teacher. :(
